Capt. Kleinschmidt's plane took off
quietly one night about three weeks
ago from the Washington-Hoover Air
port. It made its first stop in New
York for additional supplies, and then
roared off from the Mineola flying field
headed for the Arctic regions. It flew
over Ottawa, Hudson Bay and Coro
nation Gulf to Victoria Land, the home
of the Blond Eskimos. This was as
far as their fuel supply permitted
them to go by airplane. Here the
explorer's many friends among the
Eskimos provided the party with dog
teams and reindeer for his final dash
to the frozen stronghold, where he
finally succeeded in finding Santa
The party faced many hardships
and dangers, fighting off wolf at
tacks and battling with "Layluk" the

happy to announce that the expedi

brave captain and his party are safe

By Wireless to The Evening Star.
BY CAPT. F. E. KLEINSCHMIDT.
SANTA CLAUS LAND. November
18.—As we neared the outskirts of
Santa Claus' stronghold, we met a
little gnome, Jimmie Aide, who prom
ised to talk with Santa and return
with a message from him if he would
True to his name, Jimmie Aide
appeared early this morning. "Did
you hear from Santa?" Mrs. Klein
i schmidt asked.
"Of course, I did," was his answer.
Excitement ran through the crowd.
"What did he say?" I queried.
"First, I was called upon to say
that you were from Washington and
were on an expedition for The Eve
ning Star," Jimmie replied. "That
eeemed to please Santa. I gave him
your name, Captain, and he stated
that he had heard of you. Of course,
Santa stated he had never received a
human being in his castle, but that in
this case he would make arrangements
to see you and to make your stay a
pleasant one. Santa Claus is such a
kind-hearted man that I would not
be surprised if you tell him how much
the children in Washington love him,
that he will even allow you to take
moving pictures of him in his castle.
Every boy and girl in Washington
must receive gifts this Christmas,
"I have special instructions how
we are to approach the palace and
I will act as your guide. Come fol
You may imagine it did not take
us long to break camp, hitch up our
3 reindeer and be off for the last dash
to the castle of Santa Claus.
The deer seemed to know they were
Hearing the end of their journey and
lengthened their stride, just as boys
do when they know that dinner is
ready and a steaming mince pie is
waiting for them at home.
„ The Kingdom of Santa Claus.
Guided by Jimmie, the gnome, we
came to a small hill in the vast
plain. Suddenly, just at the crest
of the hill, he pulled hard on the
reins and called "whoa" to the rein
deer. For the first time in the his
tory of man human beings were gaz
* tag upon the kingdom of Santa Claus
Miles ahead lay a beautiful tundra
and in the center of the plain there
stood a glistening palace. The palace
raised its steeples almost as high as
the mountains, and as the Northern
lights shone upon the ice. myriads
iji beautiful colors were reflected like
,2 Iparkling gems.
Coming closer to the castle, we saw
hundreds of little gnomes standing on
tile parapets and the great balcony
leading around two sides of the castle.
They were waving and cheering—and
it made a wonderful picture for our
movie camera, which ground along as
we went. We saw one gnome slide
down a great icicle and run around
the castle to the front gates, and then '
there was an exciting scene as the
gnomes made way for a great, fur
clad figure to approach the railing of
the balcony. The tall figure clapped
his hands and all the gnomes stood
at attention as if they were soldiers.
The face above the fur suit was
smiling and it flashed a set of white
teeth from behind a mass of whiskers.
"Whoa, Trouncer, whoa." Jimmie
pulled the reindeer to a halt before
the great doors of the ice castle and
I lifted my fur cap to the figure above
me. "Welcome, captain and party,"
a great voice roared. You now are in
the kingdom of Santa Claus. I am
going to give you the first handshake
that ever was given to mortal man in
my home. Come in."
We jumped from our sleighs, ran up
the castle steps and soon shook hands
with the great man whom we toad
traveled so many miles to see.
(Tomorrow Capt. Kleinschmidt will
send us by wireless his account of a
day in Santa's castle. Be sure to

ICKES ASKS DISMISSAL
OF SUITS ON PARK LAND
Court Actions Sought to Prevent
Acceptance of Title to Two
Secretary Ickes Friday asked Dis
trict Supreme Court to dismiss the
suit filed in a if eiTort to prevent him
from accepting title to two large
tracts of land in the Shenandoah
The suit contended the land had
been taken from the original owners
without proper condemnation pro
The answer of the Secretary con
tended the plaintiff had failed to state
a cause of action, that the suit showed
on its face they did not have suffi
cient title to the property to maintain
the action, and that there was no
charge that the Secretary Li exceed
ing: or threatening to exceed his au
thority under an act of Congress
authorizing acceptance of the land.
